This race is on target to sell out for the fifth year in a row, never seen such demand so early!

still debating whether to do this - but edging towards "yes" - when shall I decide?!

Do it TTP - another UKNr there!!

 The size of the pudding is enough to entice most (I can't stand it - but it makes a great stocking filler for the outlaws!!!)

superbly organised and a great atmosphere - even last year with horizontal sleet, heavy rain and a bit of icy wind for good measure!!!

Thanks TT!   Weather conditions sound just great!

I think I will.  Are you doing it?  Are you local? (sorry, that's a bit League of Gentlement, isn't it...)

One of our UKNr guys kindly offered to run it with me - I think I'm going to apply online right now!

I'm Warwickshire...  but used to live in Eastwood - so old stomping ground, (i.e. used to go to shipley a lot, and use the swimming pool / gym at Heanor!)

So..  as long as it's not a local race for local people..  I'll be fine  ;o)

I may do it

Only down the road!

Ran the course the other week to get a feel for it, deceptively tough me thinks! You think you have got away with it but there are two climbs near the end, the first of which is long and gradual then for good measure steepens for the last few hundred metres.

You are gonna know you have run this one for sure

I would put in your training some hill work when already fatigued

See y'all there

Just ran this this morning (Sunday) in the wind and rain. Not too bad..Was a bit wet and muddy in places but enjoyed the course.. Time 1:04...! but this is a relfection of the hills which arn't too bad but do take it out of you a bit. The last climb up into the park isn't that bad  - i made it up without stopping as there were a few peopple around which always spurs me on a bit.!  See you on Sunday Look forward to the pud.

Salty - it should do...  the UK one does with Scottish races..  we're all one happy famil after all  ;o)

I ran this one last year in the horizontal rain.  It was a well organised and really enjoyable event, despite the circumstances.  The long sloping hill towards the end of the race is a real sting in the tail.

Brand new course this year, taken out the long drag at 8.5k. Hopefully better weather this time! Race sold out well in advance again. Thanks everybody!!
